[texts]The Physics of Ocean Waves - Michael Twardos
his text is intended to be a general but comprehensive overview on physical phenomena associated with the marine environment. I provide my own perspective on this field from my particular experiences and training. Throughout your reading, you may and that I have occasionally strayed rather far that what most people would consider in the bounds of the "physics of ocean waves" (and surging). There are, indeed, alot of great physical systems that have similarities to the ocean and they are all wrap...

[texts]Oscillations, Waves, and Interactions - Thomas Kurz, Ulrich Parlitz, and Udo Kaatze (Eds.)
In this book some review articles by former and present members of the Dritte are combined, indicating the broadness of the research interests which developed from this theme. Unfortunately, such collection of articles allows only for a limited access to the broad variety of different fields of interest that have been dealt with in the past. The reviews are, therefore, complemented by a short overview which, again, cannot show all aspects of successful work during the sixty years of existence of...

[texts]Hypersonic Nonequilibrium Flow Simulation Based on Kinetic Models
The nonequilibrium hypersonic flowfield over a blunt body is computationally simulated by self-consistent kinetic models. The conservation governing equation is based on the continuum formulation by the kinetic theory of a diluted gas for transport properties, and a group of chemical-physical kinetic models of chemical kinetics for nonequilibrium chemical reactions, and energy transfer among internal degrees of excitation.In this regard, the present analysis summarizes the current progress  ill...

[audio]Art & Politics: Keith Hennessy--Saliva - Shaping San Francisco
a 1988/89 performance by Keith Hennessy. Twenty years ago Keith Hennessy created Saliva, an interdisciplinary dance-performance-ritual under a freeway in downtown San Francisco. Deep within the rage and grief of the AIDS crisis, Hennessy performed a ritualistic reclamation of the body, the queer male body, as holy.
